Suffolk Craft Society Exhibition
Last Saturday Graham and I headed up to Aldeburgh to the Peter Pears Gallery for the Suffolk Craft Society’s annual summer exhibition. Several members have exhibited work with us at the Lexden Arts Festival over the years, and it’s always interesting to see the new work – and of course, work by new members!
We both agreed it is the best show they have put on for some years, and especially liked the more streamlined way in which it was set up – not nearly so cluttered looking, but still lots of work.
Caroline Sullivan, who will be showing at LAF again in 2017, had lots of her lovely knitwear designs – and some little fun things, too, like these knitted brooches . . .
. . . which I couldn’t resist!
We particularly liked Greta Hansen’s wood-cut prints, and I’m delighted that she has agreed to show at next year’s LAF, and I have hopes that the jeweller, Alison Dane, whose colourful work is very appealing, will also agree to show with us.
Lunch at the Crossed Keys, and a quick stroll on the beach (not really the weather for it!), followed by a look round Thompsons Gallery, and then down to Snape Maltings for a wander round and then tea and cake concluded a happy Saturday.
And back home in my studio? – I’m just beginning the first of my Ridgeway paintings (read all about my walk on the Ridgeway in the May 2016 archive) . . .
. . . although I’ve also got five notarial faculties to complete this week, so progress may be slow!
